A wealth of information: your questions on personal health budgets answered

04 / 09 / 2014

Personal health budgets are being rolled out across the NHS. To deliver good outcomes for people, commissioners and providers will need to pay close attention to how budgets are implemented. This briefing, produced in partnership with Think Local Act Personal, highlights relevant information, support and guidance and answers some frequently asked questions. 

The NHS Confederation has discussed experiences of making personal health budgets happen with a number of NHS leaders and managers. From these discussions emerged a range of common issues, for which further information and support was felt to be helpful.

The issues raised included:

  • how to deliver personal health budgets in ways that support integrated, personalised care
  • how much implementation would cost
  • how to identify and prioritise those groups who would benefit most, for offering personal health budgets beyond continuing healthcare
  • how to avoid double running costs and prepare for the services and interventions people will want
  • how to manage risk.

The announcement by the Secretary of State of a raft of measures designed to improve the mental health of NHS staff is an important and welcome one. It is a first step in the NHS making good on the NHS Ten Year Plan's desire to see employers having "a key role to play in supporting their staff to stay well and in work.” Given the higher than average sickness rates in the NHS compared to other public sector organisations, Peter Molyneux, chair of Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, explains why it is important that the NHS sets the standard.
